Howard Iceberg and the Titanics 

On top of having one of the quirkier band names in Kansas City, Howard Iceberg and the Titanics might be the best Americana act in town. Howard Iceberg (real name: Eisberg) delivers old-school tales of love, loss, war and women with a Dylan drawl and a weary worldview. His tunes stand up fine on their own, but the band's electric guitar leads and vocal harmonies take the songs to soaring heights when performed live. Eisberg has vowed to keep writing songs until Death shows up at his door and pries the guitar from his cold, dead hands. (He says he's on a "nonstop recording project.") Until that dark day, he will remain a fixture on the Kansas City music scene, playing his dusky folk tunes for anyone lucky enough to listen.
